KAFP-Foundation (KAFP-F) is the philanthropic arm of the Kansas Academy of Family Physicians with the mission to promote the philosophy of family medicine, research, and education of family doctors caring for Kansans. KAFP-F works in partnership with KU School of Medicine, Kansas family medicine residency programs and other organizations that share our vision and passion for support and service to family physicians of Kansas.
KAFP-F only funds projects or programs within Kansas that further support its mission. The majority of funding for planned projects and programs funded are education-oriented with the purpose to encourage medical students to select family medicine as their specialty, assist residents in scholarly activities and build engagement with KAFP, or provide pertinent CME opportunities for Kansas family physicians in practice. The Board occasionally receives unsolicited requests for funds. For such grant requests the maximum amount funded will not exceed $1,000.
KAFP-F’s Board of Trustees will consider unsolicited grant requests during its Winter and Summer meetings only. All requests must be submitted through the appropriate form on this timeline:
Submit by Nov. 1 for consideration at the Winter meeting
Submit by May 1 for consideration at the Summer meeting
Applicants will be notified of their funding status within 3 months of application deadline.

Fund endowments, special events, arts or international programs
Loans, startup expenses, or seed-capital funding for private businesses or scholarships requested by individuals

Programs in furtherance of sectarian religious activities, impermissible lobbying, legislative or political activities
